School Bus Heading to Pickup Students Crashes, Knocks Out Power in South Jersey

A school bus crashed up onto a curb, knocking out power to a South Jersey middle school Monday morning 

The bus left the roadway along N. Liberty Street in Hammonton, New Jersey around 7 a.m. and struck a utility pole, according to a robocall from Hammonton Public Schools.

The bus driver and two adult aides on board at the time weren't seriously hurt, the Hammonton Public Schools Transportation Department said.

The bus was on its way to the first pickups of the day and had no children on board, said the transportation department.

AC Electric crews rushed to the scene to restore power. Hammonton Middle School operated on backup power Monday morning, the district said.

No word yet on what caused the wreck.
